Kandi Burruss is one proud mama! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Instagram on Wednesday to not only name her daughter as her ‘Woman Crush Wednesday(WCW)’, but to also praise the teenager for the success of her fitness movement “Get Riled Up”, which took place on Sunday, September 15, 2019.
Kandi wrote, “My baby girl @rileyburruss is my #wcw today. I’m not sure if she can be my wcw but if she can that’s who I pick… Because not only did she push herself to #GetRiledUp about fitness, she also started a movement to motivate others. We all know the struggle of trying to lose weight. Keep pushing baby girl! You’re helping me get motivated & I need the motivation. Love you!”
Several of Kandi’s RHOA co-stars attended the ‘Get Riled’ up event, including a pregnant Eva marcille, Cynthia Bailey, Marlo Hampton, Porsha Williams, Shamea Morton, and Nene Leakes, to name a few.
“Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting me! I appreciate it,” Riley wrote on her Instagram.
